Just got this new toy, she's an 11/77 - 1978 Brat. :brow:
Stock with brand new rubber, Just turned over to 70,000 Original miles ! This is an oringinal California car with all emission controls intact. It has never been driven in winter and was with the same family since new. :cool:
Just had our Brat undercoated and back Rhino lined to keep her in this special condition. We plan on a new paint job very soon, she's original green at the moment & abit dull looking BUT she's a gem in the rough.
Original jump seats intact does have a newer stereo system thou "Pioneer" w/speakers :banana:
NEEDS MORE POWER likes to blow fuse now and then :banghead:

well let's see, if it's a 78, and it has the original green paint, it MIGHT look something like this one?:

One of these years I'll try to get as many as I can up to the show. Probably be around 7 or so if I can line up drivers for them all.:grin: They all need a little somethin to get them running, but most aren't doing too bad.

Thanks so much Skip for the hearty welcome aboard :)
We r also the 2nd Owner , well actually the 2nd family and hopefully she will maintain her current status if not better and she will remain alive another 27 yrs. Just went over the 70,000 MPH but at the moment she is used at least 3 x a week.
Hopefully will slow down once she's got her new paint and Dale finds his hill climber :banana: as I'm more for preserving her BUT she does play well !!

So we're on the hunt for a Gen2 , so we have one for show and one for play. Our recent photo's include some of the playing Dale does with his old toys.. so he needs "MMMMMORE POWERRRRRR" :eek:

Ma, right you are about one for show one for go.

I have a gen II also for show (38 kmi)
But.. I have been collecting a bit longer (I have been on this planet ten years longer than ya)

I'm up to 4 1/2 Brats, three gen IIs and a factory Brat go cart (=1/2)

My daily user is an 86 with a Weber and custom duel exhaust - that is what Dale needs,
she can keep up with traffic soto speak.

With the gen II you get a duel range tranny and the 1800 -
plenty of "go fast goodies" available for it.

Check Qman's "Beast" - now there is a stump puller

GOD I MISS MY BRAT

Yours looks fine! I love the forest green, has the same amount of miles as my baby did when she died.

Take a look

Hope you have a lot of fun with her
